11th Annual AGCP Clubfitters Convention

When: 
November 9 - November 12 2016

Where:
The Historic Columbus Irons Works Trade and Convention Center - Columbus, Georgia

Proposed Classes are listed below - Exact Times and Dates will be clarified as we approach the date of the convention.

If you are new to clubfitting or you've been around a long time we have something for you. 

For RT-11 we offer a tremendous learning experience for all who attend.  The following classes will be presented but days and times will be announced later. When we get dates and times we will send out an email to all registrants and/or announce on the main email list.

Dave Kenzie

Dave will present a class teaching us some bench skills we need to know to build custom golf clubs. He will teach us how to use a Drill Press for drilling and reaming hosels and how to shorten hosels for various reasons.

Here is what Dave intends to point out in his presentation on reaming of hosels, and other issues.

Most hosels can be reamed. Taper tip (.355) can be opened up to parallel tip (.370).

When dealing with fitting irons  where it is necessary to cut the hosel to obtain a weight to allow for the hosel adapter.

Working with Wishon woods and hybrids with .335 hosel diameter and the need to open the hosel up to either .350 or .370 diameter. - How it is done.

After adjusting loft and lie angles on iron heads, how you might want to ream the hosel to make certain no out of round occurred with the hosel ID during the bending process.

When cleaning a taper tip or parallel tip hosel, reaming the hosel, is a way to clean and size the hosel to guarantee a proper fit.

I will show ways to ream using soap instead of cutting fluids as a coolant. Soap will not inhibit the epoxy of proper bonding.

He will also show ways to clean the hosel using spiral abrasive rolls and wire brushes.

He will also demonstrate chrome polish and “blue away” to remove any heat generated discoloration to the hosel.

Level 9 Clubfitter John Schiavone

John will be discussing how shaft weight changes the golf swing based on the test clubs we hit at RT- 10

Master Clubfitter Keith Chatham

Will teach us how to use The Little Green Book

Fitting and Building Single Length Irons

Master Clubfitter Dave Hohnke

Dave will be conduction a number of classes on a number of topics.

  • ·       He will cover the 21 variables that are measurable in a golf club and explain how to fit for them. There will be 3 two hour sessions and you will learn the necessary skills to be able to fit golfers of all skill levels after the 6 hours of instruction.
  • ·       He will offer a two hour session covering the Moment of Inertia method of fitting, and including covering the MOI/MBI and how to use the spread sheet. This information is what could be referred to as the Holy Grail of fitting. Those who have mastered this are fitting, at a new higher level
  • ·       He will use a Multi-Match machine and give a hands on class demonstrating where feel comes from in the shaft. He will also bring in for that same session shafts, heads, and grips, for the attendees to build and then test on the Flight Scope.
    As part of the  presentation we can build with differing shaft weights and the attendees can measure the differences in flight path as differentiated by shaft weight, and tip flexure. 
  • ·       The follow up will be an open forum discussion about space aged shaft design and how we  can measure it. To our advantage as professional club-makers!
  • ·       He will be bringing the original pendulum measuring device for MOI, and a speed match and do a presentation about MOI, and how to use the Monte D spreadsheet to design a club before the build.   On this one, time permitting, we may also do a club-making project to see how well the attendees can match the spreadsheet.

Additional Details and Speakers to be announced as they are confirmed.
